Wisconsin Open Casting Call for 'Public Enemies'

"Public Enemies" - which is set in the 1930s and in which Depp plays John Dillinger - will begin shooting in Wisconsin in mid-March. Auditions were held in Madison, last month. The requirements for the audition are rather specific, and the casting directors are looking for "people with great faces."

Men: Males should no taller than 6'1" and no larger than size 12. Men should wear a dark suit, overcoat and dress shoes. Hair should be kept long.

Women: Females should be no taller than 5'8'' and should wear a dark dress or skirt and sweater, overcoat and medium heel. Women are advised to set hair in curlers the night before and come to the audition with their hair brushed out.

Men and women should both bring a recent color photograph of themselves.

The auditions, which are for non-speaking roles in the film, will be held at the following date, time and location:

Friday, March 7, 2008

The Casting Drector has her own base but I think that you could try just in case the kid is perfect and if not the kid can join her data base :-)

the line is over 500 long and they are rude and make you wait outside in the 10 degree cold by the lake in your period style hair and dress. NOT a good casting company!

I was there too... I waited 1+1/2 hours with a girlfriend of mine and our feet went so numb it was like standing on stilts... but we realized at that point that we were still closer to the door than to the car, and walking would have been harder than rolling to the door... heh... we made it, but the call backs aren't for another week.
